Woman with Washing Up.

This painting is in the Art Collection of the superb musician Hardy Ismail.

Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, good mother, good looking, good tempered, well groomed and unaggressive

This painting is about this quote. Note that the woman is drowning in Washing up, signifying my frustration  with not being able to do my painting because I have chores to do. (Note: it is highly likely that if I was a man, I just wouldn’t bother with the chores at all and become a great artist as a result. Sorry for my cynisism – it is born out of frustration! lol)
